3.0 out of 5 stars This book was lacking
I bought this book because I intend to retire to Thailand. I love Thailand and the Thai people and culture. This book is like a tourist pamphlet. It really wasn't very informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where to Retire in Thailand - The Thai Government..., April 8, 2013
This review is from: Where to Retire in Thailand (Kindle Edition)
... offers very useful informations for living a happy 'Third Age' in the 'Land of the Smiles'!
They present to You a lot of knowledge about the most interesting or fitting places for You, to feel finally at home...

For example here is written down exactly, if or how You qualify for a Retirement Visa.
How to obtain that, beginning in Your state of residence.
How to arrange Your accounts with Your bank in Your home country, and the new deposits in Thailand.
That Thailand has a world famous medical care, because this country has been chosen by many USA or Europe trained doctors to practise with state-of-the-art medical equipment.
Then there are very useful informations about the accommodations, mostly in residences with all comforts.

But it is very difficult to buy or a flat or a house as an retiree or an immigrant in Thailand!
That is a fact You should know right from the beginning.
But renting in the place You may like can be very convenient.
And You can always change for an other spot to try ...

For 49 cents, yes 0,49 Euro take a look at the possibilities Thailand has to offer! A small price for a lot of information!

2.0 out of 5 stars A guide for tourists, not retirees, August 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Where to Retire in Thailand (Kindle Edition)
Very little useful information in this. It is mainly a series of links to tourist attractions,with little useful information on cost of living, housing options, food, or the other information I was hoping for. It cost just 99 cents but even so, I would not recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covers where to stay in each area, September 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Where to Retire in Thailand (Kindle Edition)
The book was vague as to visas, what can be shipped without import duties, and which medical facilities to choose. It offered suggested hotels, but didn't deeply discuss buying versus renting, or provide examples of the costs of living in each area. Still, it serves to remind the reader that Thailand is large and varied and should be explored fully.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for, July 15, 2013

This review is from: Where to Retire in Thailand (Kindle Edition)
More like a tourist guide than a serious look at retiring in Thailand. I was really looking for some first hand experience from people who had done this from western cultures and their experience from retirement, not just a long holiday.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly poor information, October 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Where to Retire in Thailand (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book because I was writing 'How to Retire in Thailand' and wanted to be sure that I included coverage of the major retirement destinations. But I found only a weak assortment of superficial tourist-level descriptions.
There are many, better sources of information on Thai retirement locales available on the Internet – often written by people who live in those locations and are passionate about them – and they're FREE. Or you can pay money for my book, though that covers a lot more ground than this.
My point in writing this review is not to pour scorn on this book, which would be fine as a free download from the Thai Tourist Bureau, but to tell book-buyers that this is not money well spent.
